Road trip recommendations in the USA or Canada?

My husband and I have just returned from a great trip to West Texas; both back to work tomorrow. In order to keep our sanity, need to start planning the next road trip. Any suggestions? Probably no more than 10-12 days during the summer and we are willing to fly to a start off point. We like to linger. Preferably in the US or Canada.

Is it a bad idea for my terminally ill grandmother to go to the USA for 48hrs?

My dad and I are thinking of taking my 85yr old grandmother on a road trip. She was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer last Thursday and decided on Friday that she doesn't want to go through treatment. She does, however, want to see her sister, sister's kids and grandkids one last time. However, they live 1,300KM away in a mid-sized Mid-West city in the States while we're in Toronto. We'd like to make this visit happen for grandma, recognize all the risks inherent in trying to do so, and would like to hear the stories/experiences of anyone who has done anything similar. Relevant details below the fold. Thank you. [more inside]

What to do between Toronto and Boston?

Please suggest places to see, things to do, places to stop/stay overnight, and routes to take for a five day car trip between Toronto and Boston? It should only be about 10 hours of direct driving, so plenty of time to stop and visit. Are there any really cool things I've never heard of and shouldn't miss? (Niagara Falls and Montreal are possibilities, but I've already heard of them :) Thank you!

Attractions between Cleveland and Milwaukee?

Driving between Cleveland and Milwaukee with a day to spare; any ideas about interesting things to see? Not that interested in Cedar Point. Leaving the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to go to Alpine Valley Music Theater for Pearl Jam's 20 Anniversary concert, if that context will help. Like national parks along with man made attractions.
